Upon purchasing a new Mac Computer, one may worry about the files, documents and windows-based applications that were currently stored and installed on their old Windows PC. The option they have to access these files is either to purchase Parallels Desktop for Mac version 7 or to purchase Parallels Transporter. Without these applications, your only option is to recreate or re-download these files and purchase again the applications you previously have on your old PC.
The best option is to purchase parallels transporter software. The software is currently sold at its introductory price of $4.99. Regular price is $39.99. The Desktop for Mac Version 7 application software will cost more at $79.99. Most consumers may choose Parallels Transporter considering the price differential compared to the other application.
Choosing this software enables them to instantly copy the documents, music, images, and their browser’s bookmarks. They can also move directly the Windows based applications they bought online. The software can now be purchased on Mac App Store. You can reinstall some of the application programs if you have the Installation CD or DVD. This time, just choose the appropriate setup program for your Mac.
The parallels transporter supports the migration of files via Parallels USB cable, through Network (Wi-Fi or wired) and through external drive. Connection settings are automatically set when wired connection is chosen. Manual configurations should be done if wireless connection is used.
System requirements include Intel-based Mac OS X or later, 1gigabyte or more system memory, free space of about 150 megabytes, and enough Mac free space equivalent to the size of the original file being transferred. The source PC must have parallels transporter agent which is also available for download. One should start this utility before migration if it fails to start automatically. If one may encounter errors during migration, you have to uninstall the Transporter agent and restart it. Install the agent application again then restart your computer. Migrate the files again and ensure both programs are running properly. One may also check the Mac firewall if the transporter agent is being blocked.
This transporting application is limited in migrating basic disk only. Dynamic disk can’t be used but its contents could be transferred first into a basic disk before transferring the files via Parallels Transporter software.
This software is recommended by most users who have purchased the application. Some of the feedback include user-friendliness and ease of use, cheaper cost, and there’s no need to reset their Mac after they have completed the file transfer.
